... studied Computational Linguistics and Classical Archaeology at the University of Heidelberg and is currently working on a PhD thesis on the ‘Computer-Based Analysis of Multi-Sided Minoan and Mycenean Seals’ which involves applying machine learning, clustering and social network analysis to an archaeological research question.

Before her time at the ACDH, Martina was employed at the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) where she was involved in the project IANUS to build a digital archive for the archaeologies in Germany and developed the IT guidelines IT-Empfehlungen für den nachhaltigen Umgang mit digitalen Daten in den Altertumswissenschaften.

Additionally, she is interested in everything involving photography and 3D, including RTI photography, spherical panoramas, photogrammetry and 3D scanning.
